As per usual, here are all the books I picked up today. In completely unrelated news, this is what I had to go through in order to pick my comics up.
If you care about me that much, you can read all about the snow storm,. I know we’re supposed to be a videogame website, but I think it’s pretty neat to be able to let you all know a little more about each of us. So today, this is pretty well what I had to go through in order to get my comics. No, that’s clearly not me in the picture. I just took the one that’s been floating around the local news. So, now that I have my comics, here’s exactly what I picked up this week.
So before I take off, I just wanted to mention the fact that I may not be keeping all these various mini-series over the next few months so if you see anything disappear, you know why. I’m trying to cut back a little bit. Comics aren’t cheap. They range from $2.99 to $3.99, which means this is a really expensive hobby to have on top of all the videogames I play. If you’re curious what Dodgem Logic is, it’s something special. It’s being imported from the United Kingdom that Alan “Watchmen/V For Vendetta” Moore started up. This is the first issue and it looks quite promising. There are a few comics featured in the magazine on top of some really interesting articles. I’ll have more detailed impressions in the coming days as I get the chance to ponder through it.
Alright so here’s the scoop. I’ve been collecting comics on and off for over twenty years now. This is one story that I actually own in comic form, much like Batman: Year One, and others. Why am I showing you all this, because on our staff message boards we frequently talk about various books we’re reading. Steven just so happens to be reading a lot of these older graphic novels and given how many comics I have, I’ve been buying some of these trade paperbacks in order to relive the memories. Steven really got me hooked on some of the older Batman stories like Year One, Dark Knight Returns, and The Long Halloween.
See what I mean? I’ve also ordered a few other trades which I’ll take a few pics of when they come in. Oh, and get this Ahmed is also buying a few comics. See what’s happening, it’s spreading! All of these graphic novels/trade paperbacks can be ordered via Amazon so check out your local Amazon site to pick up any of these. They’re all truly worthwhile. Oh and to prove I do indeed own the originals, behold…
